Woman thanks CVPD officers for saving her life

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - It was an emotional day for a Chula Vista woman as she thanked the officers who saved her life.

Friday was a reunion for Anna Krone and two Chula Vista Police officers who came to her aid when a suspected drunk driver ran her over as she was standing outside her home.

"I didn't understand what was happening.  I just felt like half of my body was there and half of it not,” explained Krone.

A driver, identified as 27 year old Sergio Rodriguez, was allegedly under the influence when he hit Krone, pinning her against another vehicle November 20 just after 10:00 p.m. on Montclair Street.

Officers Casey Rose and Curtis Chancellor were the first responders on scene.

"I never had anybody yell officer help me and she did it repeatedly. When she stopped talking, I got very concerned,” said Curtis Chancellor with the Chula Vista Police Department.

Equipped with tourniquets, the officers worked quickly and applied pressure to Krone's legs which were badly injured.
While she wound up losing them both, the application ultimately saved her life.

“How do you say thank you to life,” she said.

Krone did so inside the nursing home where she continues to heal. During the face-to-face meeting, she not only expressed her sincere gratitude, but she also asked questions about the incident.
     
"Did you sit on top of my legs? Did you guys ride with me to the hospital?"

Krone told the officers that she and her family will never forget what they did for her.
     
"You guys are amazing people,” she said.

The officers meanwhile say they're grateful for the opportunity to reunite, adding that Krone’s positive spirit despite the circumstances is something everyone can look up to. 

Fire crews as well as other Chula Vista police officers helped with the rescue

Krone's son and sister joined her for Friday's reunion.
